We have stayed at this property a number of times over the years and observed on our recent visit a definite decline in the condition of the rooms, bedding, cleanliness and front desk attentiveness.
Our room was well used and needs refurbishment. Our microwave was basically inoperable, the 'kitchen' sink drained slowly, the counter was nicked in a couple of places and the tub also drained slowly...all signs that the owners are not attentive to maintaining their property. The lighting in the halls is really dingy which I don't remember...maybe they are using lower wattage bulbs (not a good idea in my opinion).
They also have a quaint procedure that I last saw in the most western Chinese province of Xinjiang...you had to ask for toilet paper at the front desk!!!!! Oh, and you had to daily ask for coffee, towels and any other consumables. I understand there is no daily maid service but someone should check each room daily and replenish items of this nature.
I have found over the years that the cleanliness of common spaces is a good indication of overall cleanliness...and this hotels fails. There was the same dirt in the corners of the elevator for the six days we were at the hotel. And the rooms left a lot to be desired...I would hate to think how often the old fashioned bed covers are cleaned.
All in all...our last time staying at this property.
